12-2-18  “Walking in the Tension of Christ –  There is a culture war going on that lures us into two extreme ways of viewing the world.

But, do you really know how to live in this tension? Find out! (John 8:5-11; Rev.2:26; Mk 12:31).

11-25-18   “Hitting the Right Target” – There is nothing more fulfilling than being in sync with heaven. Yet, it’s easy to get out of sync with God’s priorities. And one of the chief symptoms of this inalignment is constantly begging God for his provision. After all, provision always flows in abundance from good priorities. So, how do we know if we’re in sync with heaven? Simply look at the measure of your evangelism. (Luke 15; Mt. 25).

11-11-18  “To Him who Overcomes” (Part one of the Series, Address the Mess) Research shows, Christians have far better sex than non-Christians. Why is this? Indeed, the Bible teaches that sexual purity actually increases our authority and promotions. Why is this? In this funny and sobering message, prepare to “uncover” a new way to think about sex. (Rev.2:14-26; Josh. 5).
